    My leafs came today from TRDparts4u!

    I got the Dakars and some OME rear shocks along with the bushings. Im going to put them on myself but I had some questions...

    Do I need to put any grease or lube anywhere like in the bushings?
    Is there anything special I should know when putting them on?

    I had an old jack but it didnt seem to work so I went to Sears today and bought a cheap Craftsman jack and 4 jack stands.

    Im sure Ill have like 100 more questions coming Sunday. Thats when Im planing on putting them on.

    I am thinking of doing this project myself on my 05 since I am out of warranty for the Rear Spring TSB. How easy was the install and how do you like the ride?

    The ride is great. I really like is much better then with my block. The install was pretty straight forward. Just make sure you have one or two people helping you. The only problem I ran into was I needed more jacks then I had, but thats not a big deal.
